Wednesday’s AI comes to us courtesy of last week’s COTW winner. Take it away, jynnan_tonnyx!
There’s nothing Hollywood loves more than something that’s been done before. Sequels, adaptations, remakes (or “re-imaginings”); anything, so long as it doesn’t involve anything too new and original and hard to sell.
Sometimes, of course, this is fun (I loved the new Star Trek flick). Sometimes it’s a laughably bad mess (almost any movie ever based on a video game). And sometimes it threatens to be an insultingly crass exploitation of beloved icons from our youth (they’re making a Fraggle Rock movie? Seriously?!)
Which movie/book/comic book/TV series/video game would you most enjoy a sequel/adaptation/remake of?
Conversely, what movie/book/etc should absolutely not be desecrated by Hollywood?
